|All the tales of the Valar and the Elves are so knit together that one may scarce expound any one without needing to set forth the whole of their great history.|

OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.
Denise, I agree about Kasiopea's Denethor -- exactly how I'd always pictured him. Dignified and brooding and imposing.
I really like both EW's work and Kasiopea's work. The latter's Feanorians are spot on. As you say, she captures darkness very well. Whereas EW's Elrohir, for example, is exactly how I think of that character -- powerful and beautiful as elves are, but without the weight of an awful history bearing down on him from all sides. Elrohir might be dangerous with a sword but he's not a murderer. That's such a great picture -- and too bad, as I think I read somewhere, that EW's sketch of Elrohir and Hethlin is lost forever to a computer crash.
I too got turned onto a story I really liked by some drawings -- Kasiopea's rendition of what turned out to be a young Fingon in the story The Follower by Ivanneth.
It's funny that I never ever would have known this world of fanfiction even existed if I hadn't wanted to look up something about Gondor... I think it was about Ithilien and the Sacred Pool, actually. Yes, that's it (and I've never found the answer to why the pool is sacred -- anyone?), and I just kind of stumbled onto Captain My Captain at FanFiction.net, courtesy of Google. These serendipitous links and discoveries!
